TORONTO (AP) -- An international child porn ring has been busted resulting in hundreds of arrests. Even more children were rescued.

A three year investigation called "Project Spade" started in 2010 with a Toronto based company called Azov Films. Police found they were shipping child porn pictures and video all around the world.
